Internet Gambling is a Felony in Washington State

2006 Senate Bill 6613 (Banning internet gambling)
Effective date 6/7/2006
This bill, which was signed into law March 28, 2006 by Gov. Christine Gregoire, makes all internet transations where someone can knowingly transmit or receive wagers or any other form of gambling illegal. The penalty for gambling online starting on June 7th is a Class C Felony which is up to 10 years in prison or a $10,000 fine.

How in the world did that happen? How is this going to be enforced?
